  Environmental protection is being advocated everywhere, and food delivery businesses are gradually replacing ordinary disposable containers with biodegradable containers to reduce food delivery pollution. So what is a biodegradable container? What are the main ingredients in a compostable meal box? The degradable disposable containers refers to the tableware that can eventually be degraded into carbon dioxide and water. One of the materials of the degradable containers is made of natural materials. The other is made of plastic as the main component, adding starch, photosensitizer and other substances.

  Definition of biodegradable containers
  Bioegradable containers refers to the natural environment of microorganisms (bacteria, mold, algae) under the action of enzymes, biochemical reaction, causing the appearance of mildew to internal quality changes, the final formation of carbon dioxide and water containers. The whole process of degradation can be broken down into harmless substances without human intervention, which is a long process. In addition to the degradability, the waste of the finished products of the degradable meal box should also have recycling value, be convenient for recycling, or be convenient for sanitary landfill and high temperature composting.
  
  What are the main ingredients of a compostable containers
  Degradable meal box materials are divided into two kinds: one is made of natural materials, such as paper products, straw, starch, etc., degradable, also known as environmental protection products; The other is made of plastic as the main component, adding starch, photosensitizer and other substances.
  1.Biodegradable natural material containers
  Disposable degradable containers made of natural materials are also known as biodegradable containers. Biodegradable containers is an advanced environmental protection product. It takes starch as the main raw material, adds annual long-term plant fiber powder and special additives, and makes biological full degradation fast-food box through chemical and physical processing. Starch is a biodegradable natural polymer, which is decomposed into glucose and finally into water and carbon dioxide under the action of microorganisms. In addition, the material it blends with is also fully degradable, so it can be said that it has no impact on the environment. The main source of raw material starch production can be corn, potatoes, sweet potato, cassava and other annual long-term plants. Naturally, biodegradable containers are not perfect, for example, most of the production materials are food crops, and there are mildew and other problems to be solved.
  Advantages: As starch is a biodegradable natural polymer, it is decomposed into glucose and finally into water and carbon dioxide under the action of microorganisms. In addition, the material it blends with is also fully degradable, so it can be said that it has no impact on the environment. The main source of raw material starch production can be corn, potatoes, sweet potato, cassava and other annual long-term plants.
  2.Biodegradable plastic containers
  This kind of disposable containers is made of degradable plastic. The so-called degradable plastic is to add a certain amount of additives in the production process of plastic, such as photosensitizer, starch and other raw materials. In this way, biodegradable plastics can break down from their full shape into fragments after being used and exposed to nature for three months, thus improving the environment at least visually. But the biggest drawback of this technology is that these fragments can't degrade any more, they just turn from large pieces to small pieces of plastic, which is not fundamentally up to the task of eliminating white pollution.
